When last we saw photos of little Cruz David Beckham and his brothers Brooklyn Joseph and Romeo James skateboarding in SoCal, it was November they were with their father David Beckham at a local skate park. Becks spent the next 3 months out of the country but returned last weekend to be with his family (and LA Galaxy soccer team) again. Shortly thereafter, the Beckham boys returned to the skate park to do a bit of skateboarding and, for the most part, they had a great time … that is, until little Cruz wiped out and got hurt. More »
